If you encounter an error message asking you to update your graphics drivers, you will need to download a new driver from your graphics card manufacturer's website and install it on your system.Some graphics card drivers also have a useful utility that notifies you when a driver update is available and updates the driver automatically. At the top of the window, your graphics card model will be listed under the Adapter Type section. Please go directly to the manufacturers website to download and install the the driver update specific for your model.Hello, yesterday there was a popup on my laptop for a video card driver update and my daughter agreed to update.
With much of the processing that games require now being handled by the graphics card, fitting one to your PC can have a potent effect on its gaming potential.
It is a story we hear time and again from customers: They take the time and effort to download the correct certified driver for SOLIDWORKS from the SOLIDWORKS certified list, only to have a Windows update come along and displace that driver with the “Latest & Greatest”, which in many cases, turns out to be not so great!
We can prevent the Windows operating system (Windows 7 & Windows 10) from automatically updating your drivers with the “Latest & Greatest” by following the simple series of steps below: Please keep in mind that this will not prevent other update utilities from potentially affecting your driver settings – many hardware companies have their own applications that run on startup of the operating system that check for the latest updates and automatically download and update your hardware with the latest drivers available.
Making these selections will require you to undertake regular checks for updates of the other hardware on your system, as Windows will no longer be doing so automatically.
This is only one step toward exercising full control over your system and preventing any unwanted changes that may cause SOLIDWORKS downtime.
